    Default Good opener/poor text game

    Hi gents, I new to this site. A little about me. I've been practicing pickup for a few months now, and I've gotten fairly good at cold approaching people. My one big problem that haunts me is that I'm a horrible texter. Here's the story:

    I cold approached a girl 3 weeks ago, but I was running late for class so I literally talked to her for a minute. I went for the number anyway and got rejected. Fast forward to today, I see her again. I stop her and she remembered me. Now that I actually had time today, I built a connection with her and got her number. I texted her a couple of hours late with the same standard text opener I always use. I f**** up after that though. I'm planning on just texting her in 2 days, and tryna see what I can salvage from this shit.

    Me: Hey, this is Lonnie. Save my number. It's the most important number you'll ever get.
    Her: ha cute . I will save it.

    So far so good right? Well f**** up here and got screened

    Me: Not nearly as cute as you .. lol man that sounds kinda cheesy. What's less cheesy, cute or adorable?

    I got ignored after that. An hour later I sent another text.

    Me: Well hey, have a good night. I'm about to sleep. I'll hit you up in a couple of days

    I got ignored after that too. Here's the deal, I could care less if I got her or not. I just need to stop sucking at texting. Any tips on how to carry this convo forward when I hit her up on Friday?

    I hate to say it but I think it's time to move on. After they stop replying that is usually a hint to move on.

    It sucks that this happens so quickly but girls are very picky about the words we use over text. This same thing has happened to me so many times.

    Even sometimes when I get them texting I screw it up 99% of the time. Yeah texting is not that fun. I hate how we have to perform perfectly and get past all this screening process.

    Not really much you can do besides a Freeze Out and maybe try once more with having a text convo.

    I have tried many different methods to texting such as being funny, interesting, entertaining, etc. But just realized a better way may be to have a purpose when texting. Such as going for a D2, going for a phone chat, checking compliance, getting her invested, etc.

    Yeah but I have the same problem this is why I am displaying so much indifference to my personal experiences. But as always trying to learn the right way to text HB's but still a strong learning curve I guess.

    Your problem is all your texts are a bit needy/desperate...

    The first one is ok but it's not something I'd normally send for a first text. Don't include your name in the text, then when she asks who it is you can bust her on it or get playful with it. Give her a puzzle to solve.

    you've gone way over the top with a really cheesy compliment... it made me cringe a little lol.

    Then to make it worse you've sent another text later basically telling her that you've been waiting around for her to text back...no no no (slap your hand).

    If a text gets ignored do not send another one for a least a couple of days and when you do make sure it doesn't reference the fact that she hasn't replied.

    Read this http://www.puaforums.com/how-text-gi...nal-bible.html it is massively helpful!!

    I appreciate the response bros. When it comes to texting I'm so ass. I'm 22 years old, but I'm old school. I like talking to people on the phone. It's to the point where I can say anything I want and get away with it because my phone game is good. Texting for me requires way to much thought. Sure the text I sent was needy and stupid, but I was planning on going somewhere with it. These snap judges girls like to make based off of one text completely reverses the roles. I approach a girl to have a good time, and to see if she is compatible with ME. I hate being untrue to myself to try to please another person. However, I do realize that's almost what you have to do (at least during text game) to get girls to respond back, as unfortunate as that may sound.

    Anyways, acknowledging my mistake, I texted her today. I'm viewing thing from a practice stand point, not a I'm trying to get with her stand point. Every girl I talk to for the time being is practice.

    I wanted to try the Tropics Bank Robbery opener so I sent it to the girl mentioned in this thread, and a girl who I approached not too long ago.

    This is the same girl from above. This is my 2nd time texting her.

    Me: Hey I am about to go rob a bank, you want to join me?
    Her: damn ahaa its that serious
    Me: lol yup. Basically I'd do most of the work. You'd just stay back and distract the cops, maybe dress up or something?
    Her: ahaha dress up or something aaa ur funny
    Me: Well, actually I don't want to have you slowing me down, so how about we get together and hang to celebrate my new found riches?

    She hasn't responded yet, but I'll give it til tomorrow. I doubt she will respond. I think I should have "gamed" her a little more before pushing for the date, but who the hell cares. I cold approached her and get her number for a reason.

    The 2nd girl who I tried the opener on took it seriously. I won't even post it. I had to admit like 10 texts in that I was joking or she would have probably never said anything back. I made fun of her lack of humor, and she didn't respond. All in all, I like the opener, and I'll try it on some more girls before I give any conclusive thoughts.

    Man...

    "Me: Not nearly as cute as you .. lol man that sounds kinda cheesy. What's less cheesy, cute or adorable?" << seriously?? Please tell me you don't text this to a girl. It sounds like something I'd text one of my guy friends to be funny, but never a girl.

    You CAN text, because you are obviously kinda funny. For example, next time you meet a girl, use your own words on her like this: "When it comes to texting I'm so ass. So I'm not texting you" << I can assure you that you will get a positive response to this.

    Or this: "Texting for me requires way to much thought." << yes, you can actually be honest with her and say this. She will respond positively.

    The issue I see so often is that people who are usually solid thinkers try to incorporate these games into their texts but they don't do it in a cocky or funny enough manner so it comes off as incredibly desperate.

    I can tell by the way that you type that you already don't want to take the time to deal with texting, so USE THAT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.

    For example, this type of texting would probably serve you best, because it flows with how you already think:

    YOU: Hey. I wanna text, but I suck at it and so I refuse to do it
    HER: blah blah blah

    YOU: I was going to try some pickup lines on you, but I'm too lazy to do that either.
    HER: blah blah blah

    YOU: So instead, I think you should text me something funny and keep my attention.
    HER: blah blah blah

    YOU: Wait. I'm going to sit on the toilet, can you please entertain me for 4.5 minutes.
    HER: blah blah blah

    YOU: Hey. Tell me you miss me instead of making me spend 5 hours trying to figure out how to get you to say it
    HER: blah blah blah

    YOU: blah blah blah. I love you, but i hate texting. Teach me how and I'll send you a cookie.
    HER: blah blah blah

    ** My point here is simple: Don't do role-play if you hate role-play. If you already have a short fuse with text, then modify your game so that you make her do the work and entertain you on text instead of the other way around.
